Obviously your mileage may vary. To me it almost sounds like the horns on the first Intrada are playing with mutes in (I know they're not...) But it's true that I knew the MCA release pretty well as I listened to that CD a *lot* as a teen (have only seen the film 2 or 3 times over the past 30 years, however).

Can someone make some kind of comparison clip.


I did make mp3s of all three tracks--but I really don't know how to edit and upload them. If no one else offers though, I'm sure I could figure it out.

Maybe it's because I'm not familiar with the film or the old MCA release but when I compared the replacement to the first disc I just shrugged. I admire Intrada's dedication but a repressing seemed a bit too much in my opinion.


There's a huge difference regardless if your familiar with the score or not. Though not being familiar with the score is probably why it makes no difference to you. I'm the same way when I first hear a rerecording before I hear the original version. I tend to like the rerecording better.

Exactly. I know that soundtrack fans (like any music fan) can get hung up on sometimes differences that no one would notice--but I have a hard time thinking if heard side by side anyone would have trouble hearing the difference. But yes, the first version you hear can make a big difference--I have multiple recordings of, say, Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty but my heart will always belong to the John Lanchbery version (even if it's slightly edited for the CD release to fit it on two discs).

I received my replacement disc and the difference in that horn part in the first track is certainly noticeable. It's the same notes, but now that horn part is so much prominent in the mix, it really punches through.

Received my replacement disc. Huge difference. Presence of the horns is much more noticeable. Thanks Intrada!!

It was fun on iTunes to add the first-disc version of the opening for the less-present horn entrance. As a kind of epilogue.

But I agree, that moment with the big sound is a tremendous jolt! Grateful for the replacment

I just bought a copy from Intrada last week, should it be a corrected copy?

A great score.And as always Horner manages to skillfully adapt any incorporate Prokofievs great themes into his scores.
A beautiful adaptation and fantastic listening.
